In North Canara, we get mushrooms when the rain starts. These are usually naturally grown in forests. Some people who know about where to find good edible mushrooms, pick them up from these places. They are the tastiest mushrooms I have ever tasted. Aayi prepares this dish with those mushrooms. You can even use artificially grown ones which we get in markets these days.

Ingredients:
2 cups basmati rice
1/2 cup onion
1 cup finely chopped mushrooms
1 tea spn cumin seeds
2 tea spns chili powder
A pinch turmeric
2 tbl spns ghee or oil
Salt

Method:
Heat oil and add cumin seeds. When they start popping, add onions and fry. Add mushrooms,chili powder,turmeric powder and salt. Fry for some time. Add rice and fry for 2min. Pour about 4 cups of water. Cover and cook on medium heat. Check after about 10mins to see if all water is absorbed. If it requires more water, add it.

Serves : 5
Preparation time : 15 min
